OBJECTIVES: The mean age at onset of psoriatic arthritis (PsA) ranges between the 4th-6th decades of life. However, little is known about fertility and pregnancy outcome in PsA patients. The aim of this study was to examine whether fertility and pregnancy outcome of PsA patients are different from healthy controls and to evaluate PsA and psoriasis disease activity perception during pregnancy and the year postpartum. METHODS: A questionnaire-based study, including demographic, fertility, pregnancy outcome, and disease activity questions, was conducted in PsA patients and healthy controls...

OBJECTIVE: To develop and validate in a preliminary way a novel radiographic scoring system for psoriatic arthritis (PsA), called Simplified Psoriatic Arthritis Radiographic Score (SPARS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Radiographs of hands and feet were obtained from consecutive PsA patients and assessed by two readers. For each joint (30 joints in the hands, ten joints in the feet), the combination of the erosions, joint narrowing space (JNS) and bony proliferation (BP) has been assessed, giving a value of 1 for erosions presence, 1 for JNS presence, and 1 for BP presence (SPARS score range, 0-120)...

Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a type of inflammatory arthritis characterized by cutaneous psoriasis, peripheral joint damage, axial joint damage, and enthesitis and is usually diagnosed after the appearance of psoriatic skin disease. PsA mutilans is relatively rare in Japan. In the present case, the patient was diagnosed with PsA with foot mutilans deformity only. Hand and spinal radiograph findings were unremarkable. As in the present case arthritis is occurred prior to the onset of skin lesion, we should make early diagnosis to prevent mutilans deformity...

Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects different structures of the musculoskeletal system in addition to the skin and the nail. The complexity of the disease had been a barrier to understand the pathogenesis and define valid outcome tools; however, our understanding about the disease has considerably increased with time mainly because of the advances in imaging, new discoveries in genetics and underlying inflammatory pathways, and better understanding of the epidemiology of the disease and environmental risk factors...

BACKGROUND: Secukinumab has demonstrated sustained improvement in the signs and symptoms of psoriatic arthritis (PsA) over 2 years in the FUTURE 2 study (NCT01752634). This post hoc analysis assessed the ability of secukinumab to achieve Psoriatic Arthritis Disease Activity Score (PASDAS)-based remission or low disease activity (LDA) through 2 years among patients with PsA in the FUTURE 2 study. METHODS: PASDAS (cut-off scores: remission ≤ 1.9; LDA > 1...

Objectives: Treat to target recommendations for PsA state that the target of treatment should be remission or, at the very least, low disease activity. Different clinical indexes have been proposed to define these disease states including the minimal disease activity criteria and the Disease Activity Index for PsA (DAPSA) scores, which have 7 and 4-5 domains, respectively. Using a Canadian cohort, the objectives were to calculate the proportion of patients achieving these criteria, their prognostic value and the overall patient impact of these disease states...

The prevalence of sarcopenia in rheumatic diseases has been evaluated in single diseases using various diagnostic approaches, generating conflicting data on the pathogenetic mechanism(s). Herein, we evaluated both muscle mass index (MMI) and muscle strength to assess sarcopenia and presarcopenia in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis (PsA), and ankylosing spondylitis (AS). Moreover, we evaluated the possible impact of disease/patient-related characteristics, therapeutic regimens, and nutritional aspects on sarcopenia...

The treat-to-target strategy (T2T) was associated with better outcomes in psoriatic arthritis (PsA) compared to standard care in clinical trials. This study aimed to analyze factors precluding treatment optimization in a T2T strategy conducted in a real-world cohort of PsA patients. A retrospective cross-sectional study nested in a cohort was conducted. Medical records of patients ≥ 18 years old, fulfilling CASPAR criteria and with at least one visit in the PsA clinic, were reviewed. Demographic data, current medication, and minimal disease activity (MDA) criteria were recorded...

IL-17 drives an amplification mechanism in inflammatory diseases such as psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis. The production of IL-17 depends on the activity of RORC2 in immune cells, which suggests that RORC2 inverse agonists are capable of anti-inflammatory therapy by reducing IL-17 levels. However, oral delivery of inverse agonists remains a challenge since the binding pocket of RORC2 prefers to accommodate lipophilic ligands, which tend to have poor metabolic stability. This Viewpoint discusses recent results published in this journal that identified a potent, selective, and orally bioavailable RORC2 inverse agonist as an anti-inflammatory agent, optimized from a high-throughput screening (HTS) hit through a combination of de novo and structure-guided design...

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection may present with severe and atypical cutaneous diseases. Psoriasis also can develop in HIV patients associated with immune dysfunction and be presented as more severe and atypical manifestation. Furthermore, treatment of psoriasis in HIV patients can be complex and challenging. Herein, we report the case of a 50-year-old male with a 9-year history of HIV infection who developed an uncommon clinical variant of psoriasis with psoriatic arthritis and we discuss a possible pathogenesis of this autoimmune disease and possible treatment...
